Diego went to the dentist for the first time today!
Eric and I went but only one of us could go into the room with him. Diego chose his Papa to go with him. This was a good thing too because Eric sat in the chair and Diego was sitting/leaning on him. This would have been impossible with me. 😆
Eric went with him and I sat in the reception area. I was able to see and hear them anyway so it was okay.
The good news: NO cavities. Also, it doesn’t look like there will be a space problem for his permanent teeth.
The bad news (sort of): We have to start to really get him to drink from a cup and not a “sippy cup.” The good thing is Diego like to drink from a cup but due to laziness and trying to avoid spillage, we haven’t really pushed it.
He had some build up so we went ahead with a teeth cleaning. He did really well. The one thing he did not like was the spit suction thingie. Once he was done, he got three stickers and the dentist goody bag (toothbrush, floss and toothpaste).
When he came out, he showed me his shiny white teeth and told him that I was so proud of him. And I am.
